The camp of the leader of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB), Nnamdi Kanu has declared that his freedom will happen soon.
This position was made known by his lawyer, Ifeanyi Ejiofor after a visit to Kanu in the custody of the Department of State Services (DSS) ahead of his court appearance on Friday.
The lawyer said Kanu while remaining optimistic about winning in court, requested his followers not to give up but to continue praying for him.
Ejiofor added that discussions with the IPOB leader centered around preparations and strategies ahead of his appearance in court.
He said: “Onyendu is eminently ready for Friday’s ruling. He is firm in his disposition and strong in his conviction.
“Be assured that there will be light at the end of the tunnel. Onyendu’s freedom will happen soon. It is forward ever and backward never!
“Onyendu requested millions of his followers, supporters and Ezigbo Umuchineke to remain strong in prayers, particularly as this special day approaches.”
